The holocaust indicates that horrible time during the Second world war when nazists killed and mistreated people of others race: jews, prisoners, criminals, homosexuals and gipsies. To do this they built some concentration camps where prisoners worked and suffered, because there was no food and no great life. Bodies were burnt and people were sterminated by gas showers, electrical wires and hard work. Prisoners were obliged to wear fabric triangles, painted in differents colours, to be immediately identified.
They came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for me and by that time no one was left to speak up. ‐ Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892‐1984)
The poem explains how and how many people were deported and killed. The poet says that when Nazists took the Jews, the criminals, the Comunists or the trade unionists he didn’t speak because he was not a Jew, he was not a Comunist or a prisoner or a trade unionist. But when Nazists took him no one was left to speak. We think this poemlets us reflect on that terrible period during the Second World War.
Black triangle, pink triangle, green triangle,red triangle, blue triangle, lilac triangle,And they wore the yellow triangle.When first they came for the criminals, I did not speak.Then they began to take the Jews,When they fetched the people who were members of trade unions, I did not speak.When they took the Bible students,Rounded up the homosexuals,Then they gathered up the immigrants and the gypsies, I did not speak.Eventually they came for meAnd there was no one left to speak. Christy Moore
Yellow triangle – Christy Moore • Christy Moore writes this song to let us understand how Jews, prisoners and all the people in the concentration camps have been blown. In the song he repeats all the colours of triangles that have been placed on the uniforms of deportees. He repeats that Nazism removed all the dignity from the deportees. I hope that this will never happen again, because it has been very terrible.

We have a dream… Holocaust has been very terrible. But it help us to remember how it has removed the dignity from all the «DIFFERENT» people. We hope that there will be always in our hearts a thought for all the victims of this genocide.
It costs double effort to maintain our opinions in a time when all idealism is crushed and destroyed, where men are showing their worst side, where it doubts the truth, justice and God. Anna Frank (1929-1945)
It is man's work towards an end: the tragedy of Auschwitz, which destroyed a tradition and a civilization, has not helped anybody. Primo Levi (1919-1987)
